A former coffee shop in Vancouver's Kerrisdale is being transformed into an upscale French-Asian restaurant, aiming to open soon.

Called Jess', the restaurant at 2179 West 41st Avenue (previously Bean Brothers) is a bold venture for owners who hope to replicate their model as a franchise.

Renovations have been underway for several weeks at the address.

"Modern elegant upscale interior design along with the best quality foods will guarantee our restaurant to be one of the hottest places in the lower mainland pretty soon," pledges the restaurant in job listings.

When it comes to food, Jess' promises "French-based fusion cuisine with a magic Asian touch." 

Though specifics about the menu aren't yet available, Jess' says Chef Brian Jang will be at the stoves, with his expertise in French, Japanese, Korean and Taiwanese food.

Currently in the hiring stages for several positions, including barista/bartender and servers, Jess' says they plan to open in November. We will share more details when they become available.
